Youth Wildlife Art Contest

The George Montgomery/NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest offers young artists interested in hunting and wildlife an outlet to use their creative talent, practice artistic techniques, and refine wildlife identification skills through the creation of original works. This contest encourages youth to nurture their interest for the visual arts, hunting, and wildlife conservation. It also reinforces the positive effects of hunting and wildlife conservation with the public at large.

The George Montgomery/NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest is open to students grades 1 through 12 (including home-schooled children).

Entries are sorted into one of four categories, based on school grade:

Category I: Grades 1-3
Category II: Grades 4-6
Category III: Grades 7-9
Category IV: Grades 10-12

Entries must portray any North American game bird or animal that may be legally hunted or trapped. Endangered species and non-game animals, such as eagles and snakes, are not eligible subjects. To confirm whether a certain animal or bird is eligible, see this list of North American game animals and birds.

First, second and third place winners will be selected for each category and will be awarded $750, $500, $250 respectively. One entry will be selected to receive the Best In Show award and a $1,000 prize. Judges may also choose for a non-winning entry to receive an Honorable Mention award. All winning entries will be published on the NRABlog and in NRA Family.

Contestants are limited to one entry each. Entries may be in a medium of the artist's choice (oil, water color, pastels, pencil, pen and ink, charcoal, etc.). Submissions should be on good-quality bond or drawing paper, or illustration board. Preferred sizes for the artwork are 8"x11" or 11"x14". Matting is optional. Entries should not be framed.

Composition must be original. Photographs may be used for reference, but artwork determined to have been traced or copied from a published photograph without copyright permission from the photographer, or from another artist's work, shall be disqualified.

Please take into consideration that entries will not be returned. Contest starts September 1 and entries must be postmarked by October 31, 2019 to be eligible. Submit an entry form with each entry.

Best In Show
The Best In Show will have his or her artwork featured on the National Rifle Association homepage for one day, the NRABlog and the Youth Wildlife Art Contest website. He or she will also receive a $1,000 cash prize.
